Nursery Lesson Plan 24: Tell about Jesus - 4 March 2012

Dear everyone,

Please find a brief summary about the concept area and the activities held for the children at the preschool ministry yesterday on Sunday 04 March 2012:

Thank you very much to those who came and observed the session. It has been such a great blessing to have a special guest, Frieda Nielsen, who came and shared her beautiful  faith-story and encouraging both the children and adults to tell others about our heavenly Father who loves and cares for us. (Matthew 28:20) 

Concept Area:

Community and World


People tell others about God and Jesus. 

Bible Story:

Special Guest Speaker: Frieda Nielsen


Luke 5:1-11 The call of the First Disciples - "I will make you fishers of men"

Bible Verse:

Matthew 28:20 Tell about Jesus


There were 3 activity stations that were set up, as follow:

1) Bible Story with Colouring activity:

Luke 5:1-11 The call of the First Disciples - "I will make you fishers of men"

The fishermen Peter, Andrew, James and John have been fishing all night but could not catch any fish. They have been working hard all night, casting their nets out into the Sea of Galilee many times but could not catch any fish. The next morning, Jesus was preaching and teaching a large crowd of people near the Sea of Galilee. He saw the fishermen and called them to bring their boat over so that He then climbed into the boat. Jesus preached and the fishermen also listened carefully, even though they were tired and sleepy. Then Jesus said to them to 'let's go fishing'. They obeyed and cast their nets out into the water. The nets became full of fish. The fishermen were no longer tired but felt excited and ambitious. Peter knelt down before Jesus because he knew he is a sinful man. Jesus said 'Do not be afraid. From now on, you will be fishers of men, instead of fish'.

Let us be ambitious to tell others about Jesus!

2) Retelling of Bible Stories taught from previous sessions, such as:
- Noah's Ark
- Jonah and the Whale
- The Good Samaritan
- Joseph and his brothers
The children were encouraged to talk, listen and reflect upon these stories, and have a go and making their own collages/montages by pasting pictures that depict these Bible Stories on large pieces of paper.

3) Fishing for coloured fish:
The children had great fun fishing for coloured fishes from a 'water tank'. They could then add and paste all the 'fishes' that they have caught onto their own collages.

As part of a first-time-effort to encourage inter-generation interaction for the preschoolers, Frieda came and shared with us her own personal faith-story. This generated a lot of interesting thoughts and learning conversations with the children, who were prompted to reflect on our heavenly Father. Pictures depicting fatherly love and prayer were also shown to help the visual learners. We closed the time of sharing with a prayer.

The day's session concluded with a birthday celebration for Joshua Friis and Joshua Coote. Everyone enjoyed the yummy chocolate birthday cake, with juice and sweets that were prepared by the parents.

Overall, it was a great joy to see the children interacting with Frieda and with one another. We hope to see your children again next time, both 'old' and 'new' faces to come, share and enjoy in the wonderful teachings God has for us.
